Yes, that's correct.

This is because svnrdump outputs "Prop-delta: true" everytime, whether
it's really a delta or a delta from /dev/null. This is quite harmless,
and the logic for omitting it when it's a delta from /dev/null can be
fairly non-trivial and unnecessary. Again, svnadmin dump does it

Actually, this was sort of intentional on my part. I don't know if
this except_re (the way I've written it) is such a great idea in the
long run. We know that svnrdump needs it, but I'd like to wait until
we have more usecases before restructuring it. We might figure out
that some more general way of including/ excluding lines to match in
actual/ expected: the lambda function example you've provided is quite
illustrative. For now, let this except_re feature serve just the
svnrdump case.
